The Chicago Bears are hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football and they traded shots early. Then the Bears began to run away with it and had a solid 24-14 lead at the half. The Bears didn’t slow down in the third quarter.

A quick field goal started the half and then the Bears got another score at the end of the quarter. This time it was a touchdown pass to Matt Forte. It was a little flat route and quarterback Josh McCown just tossed the ball to Forte.

Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick looked like he could have tackled him and had hands on him. Scandrick dropped to the ground and his hands seemed to just let go as Forte crossed the goal line. It was at least the second time Forte shook some defenders and broke free. Maybe the Cowboys are struggling with the cold weather.
